During the holidays it can be difficult to control how much we eat. When you attend gatherings with friends and there are all these new dishes you oftentimes want to sample some of everything. Then there are the desserts. . .how can you pass up on all these home cooked goodies?
It’s not easy, but it’s not impossible to stay on track. Let’s review some tips so you can avoid going overboard on portions:
1. Have a snack before attending a holiday party.
If you are going to be attending a holiday party it’s to not go on an empty stomach or work hungry. This will lead you to overeat on especially rich foods. Instead, go ahead and have a snack ahead of time, such as a piece of fruit or small handful of nuts.
2. Don’t eat in front of the TV.
